Tip for the cautious: Importing goods

Even though Konstanz and Kreuzlingen seem like a twin city, the fact remains that they are situated in two different countries. This is why there are import regulations preventing you from crossing the border unchallenged with five cartons of cigarettes and the back seat full of schnapps. Most goods costing less than 90 euros, however, are duty-free. You can get more detailed information at the border and online see German and Swiss customs.
